was blessed to attend The Makeup Show NYC which took place this past week on April 30th – May 1st, in NYC at The Metropolitan Pavilion. It was one of their most spectacular New York shows to date marking 18 years of this wonderful beauty experience!

All offered and launched new products while educating artists and attendees about their products. Some of the brands also offered education on the seminar and demo stages, as well. Brands included: MakeUp Forever, Clinisoothe, Mob, Jones Road Beauty by Bobbi Brown, Lumify, NEEM, MYKITCO, Alcone Company, Omnia, and Pat McGrath

I scored a ton of great stuff. Here is my haul:

Make Up For Ever | Aqua Resist Graphic Pen
24-Hour Waterproof Intense Eyeliner

I call these “walk of shame” liners. You can party like a rock star all night and they do not smudge at all! I live for this liner.

Make Up For Ever | Rouge Artist For Ever Matte
Ultra Long-Lasting Liquid Matte Lipstick

Just found out that these lipsticks are gluten-free so I bought a ton of luscious colors.

Make Up For Ever | HD Skin Undetectable
Stay-True Foundation

Leaves me with a flawless, full-coverage complexion for nights out.

NEEN | Pretty Shady Eyeshadows

This was a new brand for me and I love their eyeshadows, I scored a lovely purple that reminded me of my former fave “Psychedelic Sister” from Urban Decay, that is now discontinued.

MOB Beauty | Lipstick

My favorite red in a recyclable container from a totally clean company and the founder is a sweetheart!

Mykitco | Brushes

I can never have enough makeup brushes so was very blessed to be gifted with these.

Ardell | Dual Lash Applicator

Can’t wait to try this because I suck at applying eyelashes!
